About the event
What better combination than Yoga & Climbing in the limestone cliff crags of Kalymnos, the world's climbing mecca? Yoga will help you improve your physical and mental climbing abilities and climbing will help you understand the meaning of living the moment.
Wake up with an invigorating Vinyasa practice on the sun deck to open and prepare the body for the day ahead, then enjoy a healthy breakfast from our panoramic terrace gazing over the blue waters of the Aegean sea. Tie up your shoes, pack your gear and we go climbing at some of the best crags on the planet which are just a short hike up from the villa, or max 15 minutes by car (Kalymnos has over 2,500 sport climbing routes suitable to all different levels of skill); learn about safe belaying, climbing techniques, knots, rope handling, and experience the thrill of climbing until your fingers are ready to fall off. After such a day, either stop for a dip in the crystal blue waters of the many beautiful beaches or have a siesta and do nothing. Towards the evening, we take a moment to restore sore muscles with a yoga session designed to stretch climber's muscles and promote relaxation, and finally enjoy a well-deserved Greek dinner either at the villa while watching the sunset or alternatively at one of the many local tavernas.
Wake up the next day and repaeat it all over again.
